The Alphabet Route Website

This site was announced here in 2008 and has been discussed just a few times since, mainly on the topic of freight car diagrams

The website ( http://alphabetroute.com/ ) has a huge number of documents, including shippers guides and lists, forms, equipment rosters, paint schemes, maps, track charts and the like.

Have another look.

controlled by the van sweringen
brothers?, at this time and stitched together
to survive via competition, via faster
schedules and connections

Of those railroads, the Vans only owned the NKP. 

At one time, the Gould Syndicate owned or controlled the W&LE, P&WV, and WM. This was before WW1.
